Construction Projects

Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie's construction attorneys represent clients in all facets of the construction industry including owners, general contractors, subcontractors, material suppliers, architects and engineers. Our experience spans all aspects of project development and construction from contract negotiation to claims and project closeout. We prosecute and defend litigated matters, handle administrative hearings before local, state and federal agencies and engage in and encourage alternative dispute resolution, including arbitration and mediation. We often review and prepare construction contracts and act as counselors to our clients regarding construction development projects. We handle claims as well as the variety of problems that routinely arise before, during, and at the conclusion of construction projects.

Clients include virtually the entire industry spectrum – from engineering contractors who construct bridges and highways and other public works, to general building contractors involved with the construction of commercial shopping centers, schools, high-rise buildings, hotels and industrial manufacturing plants. The firm's construction lawyers take pride in their willingness and ability to service all clients, ranging from small contractors to owners and constructors of major projects.

Construction disputes typically involve multiple parties and are highly fact-intensive. The common objectives of the owner, design professional, contractor, and others involved in the construction process are to complete a project on time and on budget.

When common objectives are not shared by all parties involved, litigation may be an appropriate strategy; although the construction lawyers regularly prosecute and defend litigation, we strive to minimize expenses for our firm's clientele. As an alternative to litigation, the firm's construction lawyers continuously explore opportunities to develop and implement creative solutions to construction disputes. This approach requires the client and lawyer to share a basic philosophy of dispute prevention and resolution.

Our construction attorneys work closely with attorneys in other areas of the firm. We regularly draw on the experience of our bankruptcy, employment, intellectual property, and real estate and development attorneys. We also involve our government relations team when appropriate. Our extensive experience across a wide range of disciplines allows us to better serve our clients and the business community's growing needs.

Our construction attorneys are active in trade associations that promote and protect the interests of the construction industry. They frequently speak at various educational programs and publish articles on construction law issues. In addition, the construction group sponsors a "Construction Forum Series," which is a periodic roundtable series on topics of interest to the construction industry.

As one of the Southwest's most respected law firms, Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie can provide you with the most sophisticated skill level and knowledge of the construction industry.
